I mean, Already bringing high speed Internet to hard to reach areas. But what about Project Loon? Okay. Project Loon start in 2013 to provide broadband Internet to world parts of the world alphabet, Google's parent company, They were never really to keep the costume so they shut it down. But the tech that's been left over from project Loon. Listen to this. I love this story is capable of transmitting 700 terabytes of data across the Congo River. That's right. The links were originally intended to keep the balloons connected. Now they're being used. Um, to be Internet via laser, now the director of the project, said.

So she only says that the glasses act like independent android device doesn't have to be tethered to a phone that one day replace your phone. Uh, And they say it's just a concept. They don't really have any plans to sell them quite yet. Then there there may not even be a working prototype, at least for other tech that's copied. We get some kind of Chinese knockoff.

Remembering Jamaican Producer Lee 'Scratch' Perry

"In a realm where eccentrics are taken for granted. Jamaican musician Lee Scratch Perry was singular. Perry was a hugely influential producer and not just in his home genre, Reggae but in dance, music, hip hop and beyond. Perry died in Jamaica on Sunday at age 85. NPR's Anastasia Sulcus has this appreciation. Lee Perry got his nickname from a song he recorded early in his career chicken Scratch. Good. Someone like chicken scratch. He also called himself the upsetter. It was an apt description on many levels. He had a habit of having acrimonious splits with former mentors and artists he previously championed. You'll never get away from me. I am upset at Perry's own studio Black, Ark. He worked with many of Jamaica's biggest talents. Including junior Mervin, the hep tones, the Congo's and Bob Marley's band. The Whalers. Mr. Brown is a clown rides through town, even thoughtful. Black Ark. Was like a chemistry lab for Perry's sonic experiments. He was a pioneer of dub, underlining the base and adding reverb to create lots of oral space. He also sampled before most people knew the term or the technique used found sounds and even buried microphones underground to get the effect he wanted. Perry's partnership with the Whalers ended badly he secretly sold tapes they'd made with him to another label and kept the money. Years after building his fame studio, Perry reportedly burned it down. He was an impish, erratic presence, often in his later years, sporting neon colored hair and beard and fantastical

I felt like we had a good team. That's how I feel about the dolphins. I don't feel they suck. The report says so you're not looking your chops says I'm not. They have a pro bowl corner over there. Yeah you had to grow up at Dolphins Fan. Why is he being nice. He's from down here and he's not gonNA give them any bulletin board material and he is going up against the one good player the Miami let me dolphins have so Amari Cooper nice quote you that this team would be motivated by bulletin board material and not losing by forty five points every week and being completely defeated the entire season. It's an excellent point. I'm just saying Amari. Cooper doesn't want to be the guy to actually say something and as I take. It's last week. We never got due to a last week. Chris's trap games of the week. It's trap Thursday but I already gave out this week's trap game like and I looked at the schedule tried to find other ones. They only trap game. This week is the cowboys against the Dolphin. No first half it was plus eleven and a half earlier in the week hopefully locked it in because I don't know what it is. Now I assume after this tip malign will oh strength because of all the action works. If everyone bets the guys in any survivor pools. Yes yeah you know. I'm confused by your trap game of the week because you have it being the track of the week but the cowboys still winning I mean the spread is so huge s yes. You're talking about insurance. I remember what we said the weeks ago a real trap game is the first half is where you crush a trap game. They get they get in the half and the coaches start throwing clipboards and they motivate them like. I don't care about the next Sunday night. You're turning usually with a Mario Pass. What would you say you used to be a high school baseball coach. What would you do to motivate your player. The thing about baseball is you don't can't don't have a halftime what a baseball team has though this doesn't happen in the major leagues in High School and college the way you really motivated team in game is when they're coming in from the field. Let's say they had a bad. Any of the other teams got five renting. It's five nothing instead of just having them. Come into the dugout like normal. You say no everyone out here. Let's go go right here and you have a little team. Huddle right outside the dugout in between half innings and you just you know sometimes a leader of the team gives the speech sometimes the coach. You have to get in there and give the speech. I've have learned the speeches. Don't mean a lot because it doesn't like you know you give a really big raspy and then your team strikes out all three batters so you're still alive in your survivor pulled. Yes you do the thing where you buy multiple entries or you. Just go with one done that in the past this year. It just went one. I almost lost week one with Seattle. They won by one point against the bengals. That's what I want to talk to you. So I went shock last week. I went patriots. It's been a pretty chalk season so I have two entries in survivor poll. I'm so alive with both entries week like one. I did the dumb thing and I took the same team with both entries which is not something that you want to do but I was like I will straight up die. Zach Taylor and Andy Dalton marched into the twelve man and win week. One Seattle was sweating at won that game by one point so I'm still alive and then week two last week. I took Kansas City with one which is a road team so little tricky Kansas City and then Baltimore against Arizona with the other. You didn't go patriots. I think Patriots I'm saving the Patriots for when they have a tougher game. I would have thought that I would have been the week to go both but I am going Dallas with one so I'm fading the dolphins with one and and I'm in the other one. I'm going Minnesota over Oakland Aiding Oakland once again so who you going with this week. I'm also I tend to go with the theory of of just take the biggest favorites hope it works out and deal with it at the end so I I'm Kinda leaning cowboys. I haven't really looked at the schedule too hard. Who are the biggest sprays cowboys and the Patriots Hatred so the biggest bread so basically I'm asking myself. How many times am I am. I going to be so certain the cowboys are GONNA win a game and if you look at but if you have to look at the Patriots schedule like not not every game that they play is going to be obvious win for that. I WANNA use Patriots against the jets when they're on the road see I like using them occasionally like a really good team like if I'm GonNa go with the road because occasionally I'm GonNa have to win a road game in this process. I'M GONNA go down with Patrick Mahomes. Tom Brady right like late in the season. You never know what the Patriots I feel like the Patriots one of those teams. I felt like with the motivation of the dolphins being the last time like that's why I took the Patriots well. You don't know how many weeks you have Antonio Brown with the Patriots so different team that you pick him. Let's go out to the phones and this. This guy became star on the local hour caller seen last week. We go to big Phil Big Bill. You're on there. What do guys how you live in. Were doing great the Big Phil now that you're in our lives oh good to hear good to hear I I WANNA. Give a shout out to you guys for honestly making my mornings that much better so shout out to you does couple of things. I want to talk about today. we got so. Is there a certain song that you guys have that you've got a couple of drinks wingspan you. You're still in a little bit. You're feeling yourself that you only saying during that occasion you know I I wasn't listening because I I was talking into the other guys. I'm like you know what I made a mistake. I thought big Phil with somebody else. I thought you were from North Carolina and then billy correct me. That's Tubby so big. Phil's now I gave you such a great interest the good name though brought the appropriate energy but I missed tubby. You're not tubby. I'm sorry I'm sorry I'm not going to be don't be sorry. It's not your fault all right. Can you say again because we weren't listening. Yeah no for sure so Is there a certain song that you guys sing when you get a couple of drinks in you when you're in a little loop see little little Pitsea Z. that you'll only saying when you're feeling that way versus opposed to just any other time of course all the songs what Song No scrubs I'll get down with some no scrubs and they get a couple of drinks. I'll go on that song all day all them. I'm probably more inclined to sing. The guilty pleasures like the early two thousands late nineties. These boy band backstreet boys little elephants low ninety eight degrees. I mean hell okay. We'll go five like there's there's other boy bands out there. I know we only devote our time time to the big too but there were plenty of offshoots from that so I'm kind of an expert at the children and the TRL era Roy. What's your song when you gotta learn and get a little tipsy because your because I kind of I was thinking to myself. I I'll bust out some lyrics even when I'm not really drunk so I was looking at role. Roy seems like a guy who needs a little liquid. Kerr's starts singing Roy. What's your song I don't really have I didn't have liquid courage when I was doing karaoke with a mean so is that you didn't have any union drink tonight. No Oh you're fasting. That was a fascinating though you just want to have a drink no you you didn't want to have a drink was supposed to be you like your Scotch Big Phil. L. Says it's no scrubs. You got anything else for as big Phil Yeah I want to know what you guys have. Pet peeves are real big pet peeve of mine when people so you you know how people say like. I don't know intact messages and they'll spell it out. I D K. I really hate when people actually say that in person or like say. Id k. a or something like that do you guys got a pet peeve. That just really irritates you guys. The first thing comes to my mind is just driving I. I'm very you know everyone says I'm very happy and very lighthearted but for some reason when I get in a car and I see someone doing something stupid. I just gets format and I ran my steering wheel so hard. It's usually when someone doesn't maker you're right at a red light and it's like you honk them and then they all of a sudden remember. Oh yeah it can make a right here. It's like what were you doing. Why don't you remember that you could make that right that that that would be my number. One got mad yesterday because I was making a left hand. Turn you know when the light turns yellow and red two cars moment to a two car rule so sometimes sometimes one car stays at the very back line and not the median of completely making it mathematically impossible to cars to go so but this person yesterday went up to the median allowing me to Tuck in behind them for the two car ruled the happen so I call it makes a left some dude no some lady on on going the opposite direction who was hugging the curb about to make a right decides..

"And you're saying hey listen total recall with arnold made one hundred million dollars if we bring in Colin Farrell and Redo it. We've got a chance to absolutely make money and then you it should be green lighted. We promise how do you Green Light Congo number two well. It's not Congo number two. It's a reimagining of the original Congo Congo number precale so they're just going to say no because no Congo has like a terrible legacy. No one's going to want to see it. It's box office poison like if I try to pitch like hey we're. GonNa do speed racer but this time we're going to do it right. Everyone's GonNa Forget about the two thousand eighteen version. They already have were rebooting the entire. The idea they're going to laugh at me because speed racer was just box office poison. The reason they laugh at you is that you've had box office success before and you're a Newbie. If if you were in there and you said about speed racer and your Steven Spielberg then maybe they would be light it so Jordan. Peele can get a speed racer movie done. You would think no. I would not want does not eight Jordan Peele. Gordon peeled can call his shot right now. He can do anything he wants. I guarantee you if he goes to a movie studio and says the next thing I want to do is speed racer or Congo number two they're doing. He's got a better chance of doing away Mama number five so I don't agree with you. He's had two great movies. Get Not but what else what is what's his resume. He doesn't even have a Mount Rushmore Josh more yet. That's a good point but he's got the twilight zone. I mean get out was one of those projects that everyone said that he could call his shot and you're telling me he can't can't get Congo number two done. No economic will agree to disagree LE. Let's have a day well. This isn't postseason David. I'm looking at a headline right here of last night. We're seal stares down. Walk off single in the tent. Who's The cockiest athlete you guys ever had with the Marlins like a guy that even guys on the team were like dude. You'RE GONNA get us in trouble with the way you act jose. Fernandez guys guys have anything for him. There you big at you. Were that's interesting but like so guys on the Marlins. Were even a little dude. You're going to like you know. They're going to be retaliations nations for how you're acting. I would have thought I wasn't going to thank him. That's interesting now. When you say cocky I say self-assured and I say the cocky he comes when you're being self insured during an inappropriate moment. That's what cocky is. He was mostly self assured with occasional moments of cocky when they're cocky players like let's say. Aj Burnett he was just a guy who would there would be retaliation because they're just the eye rolling early in his career. Before he matured award he was the type of player who people would just look at it not actually take seriously at all but when you've got the talent of Jose it was a different story when when his selfish ordinance became cockiness people would sit sit down and say hey you know someone's GonNa get hit the Noggin here David. I'm obviously you've I've seen the trump ski stuff. That's going on in Boston where the grandson of cars Stransky is now in the major leagues and he made the major leagues you see the Blue Jays have a bunch of sons of former you know. MLB players. I'm wondering how many when you were running the marlins how many draft picks you guys did just kind of as favors to people like you're in the thirtieth round or something you know what let's take cody. Ross's nephew because whatever it's the thirtieth round yeah we actually draft Griffin Conan back when he was coming out of high school in the I don't know twenty eighth whatever round it was just as a thank you to Jeffco nine and and so- Griffin we a new Griffin was going to college at Duke so for us we were happy to use the tech because there's no limit on picks every I'd say every few years the owner would call all in say. Hey draft this kid. You know the son of a friend of mine or the brother of a friend a cousin of a friend and it's no problem it doesn't cost anything you don't give a signing ninety bonus to the to the player to the player to the person who gets drafted and the person just gets a certificate. It says you were drafted congratulations by the Miami Ninety marlins and then they go onto technical school plummer school or law school so it happens way more than you think wait. What do you mean. There's no limit on picks you like so so there's no penalty. Obviously you draft him. You know he's going to college but you draft them. Just you know to be nice suggest CONAN but then you don't get some sort of replacement pick for that too you no but there's so many rounds. It's not like the NFL NBA where there's limited rounds. The draft basically ends when teams keep passing. It's almost like in a AH poker seven twenty seven when everyone passes on a car that's sort of the end of the game and that's a little technical for Thursday morning in the draft. It's the same sort of thing I think the limit maybe thirty eight thirty nine or forty round but it generally stops when thirty teams say okay. We've had enough no more favors I for. What is the benefit for you guys to do that favor. Why wouldn't you just take a chance on some guy that you scouted and he's still there so he's probably never going to be anything. But why wouldn't you just go for a guy that potentially could do something for you as opposed to just doing a favor because there's not necessarily room at your minor league level. I mean you're not GonNa get when you draft forty players. You're not adding forty players into your minor league system that that month right the draft is in July or I can't even remember what month but you're not adding them into your system August September. That's not an issue. It's not like we pass on our to house to draft Griffin Conan when he was eight games. This is amazing. I had no idea that's the major league baseball draft. Wait hold on could the marlins then or any team. I guess technically like your by around thirty four and you're like I'm gonNA take Jeffco nine nine son and then everyone else seems okay. That's enough and he's like no. I'm GonNa Take Jeffrey Loria. His nephew and it's like okay well we can. I know I'm going to take David Samson son and one could just keep keep going over and over if they wanted to over and over and over. This is one good way to stop tanking. If one team just stays on the clock for several years there is still limits. The picks are actually done at that. Round of the draft picks her being done every three seconds it. It goes very quickly. There's no time in between the inbetween picks. Could you draft anybody or do they have to specifically declare for the Major League Baseball draft because I'm guessing round around four hundred and fifty. How great would it be if you just went up there and said we draft Lebron James. Yes there are there. Are there are ways that you have to register a a person so they get a number and the way the draft works as you say into a conference call we draft player number four or five to six nine six nine nice and then how does that work. How does this work. What's the like. Do you have to pay a fee to be eligible for the MLB draft like what's to stop me okay so what's to stop me from making myself eligible next year for draft. I WANNA get drafted well. You're eligible. It's the it's the teams it's the MLB. There's there's a pool of players. Griffin was not a pool boy not that there's anything wrong with pool boys. He was a player who was signed to go to do as a the top hitter in high school. We just knew from nine or that. He was not going to skip college period unless he was the first or second round pick which he was not going to be out of high school so it's not as though that that we were taking someone like you or me who couldn't hit a sixty mile an hour fastball down the middle that was put on a team. Could I potentially be drafted if I were to convince a team could I be drafted in the MLB draft no why not because you're old no SOS Tim Tebow practical the reasons. I'm not talking about practical reason I'm talking about like in terms of the rules could be drafted with the rules that are set up wow. I think you're a younger than Tim. tebow are younger than Tim. Tebow mom year older. Look what's going to be the team the draft me. I don't know you need to start campaigning for this right now because team. I just do this for you know public relations remember like the huge impact he made with Lewis Brinson all star campaign. How did that go the Lewis Brinson eligible wolfer comeback player of the year this year. He didn't hold up his end of the bargain this year. I mean how it went was during our campaign was his hottest stretch in two seasons. As soon as we started our the campaign he actually went on a little heater. That is true. I I am silent because you can't see me. If we were video podcast. You'd see my eyes rolling to the back of my head honestly though David he has I think his best two or three months stretch was literally during our campaign. That's not an exaggeration. Everyone was saying quit making fun of the kid right ising him. We boosted his confidence in all honesty. I feel bad for how all of that played out just because I th I Lewis Brinson was the centerpiece in the yellow trade that was coming back and he was someone that I think that this community could have gone behind and rooted for because he wanted to be here. He's from down here like if that would have worked out differently. I think that would have been a really good story. Unfortunately it just didn't happen and I think the part of it could. It'd be just the pressure that was put on him or that. He was putting on himself just to live up to this expectations and bring the marlins back to something when it just wasn't possible with what they had there or maybe they scouted him wrong. He actually was never as good as the brewers made him out to be because a really good team promotes players in a way that makes them seem that their way a better than they are..

I went too far then you go back. Can you where you were. It's like how do I find the middle ground. You can't do it. You're often hear you might have heard this part three times in trying to get it perfect either way. David Samson joins us back from Spain and Disneyworld Peres simultaneously. I duNNo. I was confused by that last week. David welcome aboard how you doing today doing great. Let's get your review you out of the way because we're approaching baseball playoffs questions. We're approaching baseball playoffs. We got all sorts of baseball questions and I'll check out so so tell me what you're reviewing to well. I'm going to be quick because an article came out two days ago that absolutely made me crazy that they're thinking about doing a remake of the princess bride and that is truly inconceivable to me that they would mess with perfection their lack of creativity in Hollywood right now and original idea is hard to come by so they just do all these reboots and starting with these new streaming services that are just gonNa reboot all the old good series. How about one time having some writer later. All of them are out of work in WANNA. Write good things in many of whom do why not take the time to read a good script and actually give the money to produce it because I I don't care what stars they wanna be. In the new princess bride it can't be redone and listeners of lower who have not to call it lower by the way yeah it's a combination of local on our lower love it for those people listening right now to lower if not seen the princess bride pause not thirty seconds pause for the one hour and thirty six minutes right now and go watch the movie that was the beginning of Robin Wright has in Sean Penn's wife ex wife but this was maybe the most beautiful princess ever to appear on screen. The humor applauded Sean and his one liners and the beauty that Andre the giant can act and act very well by the way It's it's one of my favorite movies of all time and I got incense yesterday whenever I read that article because I I realized that when you mess with perfection you don't get cloning. You get imperfect. Nobody could ever do what Andre the giant did with like. Who would it be hypothetically early. I Kill O.`Neil Offset. That's a pretty good one. I saw someone. I wish I could credit them. I saw tweet that made me think why are we just remaking the good movies. If we're GONNA remake or reboot something why it should just be bad movies because classics asks could stand on their own like why can't someone remake Congo or attack of the killer tomatoes right. Why can't we just redo the bad ones and make I'm good..
